New Yamaha SR400 confirmed for USA

For all the standard fans who don't want something as big as the new Honda CB1100



Here's the link from cycleworld

http://www.cycleworld.com/2012/12/17...ied-in-the-us/

What do you think? How many out there would be a player for a 400cc single?

Was at a ride the other day admiring an early Z1000 72ish, I think. The owner had removed the kick starter, young fella sees us admiring the bike wanders over and declares it's missing a cover to protect the other drive sprocket shaft!

The wha?

We explained it was a "Kick starter" shaft, poor kid had no idea..... Probably thinks milk grows in cartons too.... \

The SR looks nice! would make the cultists happy to see another generation of them on the road.

A simple, clean, classic with a useful amount of displacement. Priced right it just might do well. If it's not too tinny I'd certainly consider it for a runabout and I love the kick start.

No magic button will greatly reduce its appeal especially to new riders.

Any minute now someone will chime in with complaints about lack of ABS, traction control, too little horsepower, if only it came with luggage, yada yada yada.

499cc to be exact and then we can get white bros. back to make big bore kits etc, etc. It would be nice of Yamaha to bring the sr back after all these years.
